A Couple of Quickies



Since I already had that Peek a Boo die from MFT sitting on my desk, I made a couple of git 'er done cards.  This first one is using a flower die from Memory Box.  I wanted to keep it fairly flat for mailing so I just punched a black dot out of card stock for the center.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up.



Following along the same lines as the first card, I added a small Memory Box Poinsettia and gold embossed the sentiment from Hero Arts.

On both of these I fluffed out the flowers - but then decided to sort of smash them down again.  I mean, if it's going through the mail, they're going to be smashed flat anyway so why bother with all the fluff and stuff.  Right!

I'm going to enter the second card in a couple of challenges!  YEA!  The first challenge will be over at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.  What a doll Di is - and she actually had a tiny poinsettia die like this as a prize there a while back.  I wasn't lucky enough to win it, but it did go on my list of " have to have's".  Glad I got it now.  I'm also entering this over at the Rudolph Day Challenge.  Maureen is also a sweetie and I love playing along with her challenge but usually it slips by me before I can get something created for it.  Not this time though!

Thanks for stopping by.........and have a wonderful weekend!

What a pretty pair of cards, so beautifully crafted and classic CAS style! The sentiment stamp on the first will never go out of style and the gold embossing on the 2nd card looks perfect with that little poinsettia! Well done on both Lynn!
